Quinton “Rampage” Jackson unchained, uncut, & uncensored

Part 1

Here is classic vintage Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in a raw behind the scenes approximately hour long documentary which takes a look at one of the most colorful characters within the sport of MMA.

Jackson is shown in his pre-UFC days, joking around, training, hanging out with friends and family, talking with fans, and interacting with various fighters and MMA personalities.

Much of it is humorous, such as when Rampage impersonates a woman, dons a wig, and talks with customers in a Japanese department store. Some of it you may find disturbing or even insulting, but all of it is an unbridled look at Rampage.

There’s a good chance Youtube could yank this down. So enjoy it while you can. Definitely NSFW. Parts 2-6 after the jump…

Well, I guess Sean O’Haire will have the opportunity to fight in the cage once again. Of course, the cage will be jail and he’ll be fighting for his virginity.

TMZ.com reports that on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009 O’Haire was arrested for battery and criminal trespassing. The PRIDE and K-1 Hero’s veteran and former WWE and WCW champion allegedly began screaming, throwing things, and physically attacking his girlfriend in her Savannah, Ga. home.

O’Haire’s rage eventually escalated to the point of choking his girlfriend according to the report. She was able to escape and call the police, telling them she didn’t know what had caused O’Haire to become so enraged, but that it had happened several times over the course of their relationship.  O’Haire was released on less than $5000 bail.
